Timing Chain Replacement
Timing chain replacement for all types of cars, SUV’s and light commercial vehicles by qualified mechanics. Avoid major engine damage by getting your timing chain replaced before it snaps.
Unlike timing belts, timing chains do not have a recommended replacement interval unless there is an issue. Regular oil changes are mostly sufficient to prevent stretching, premature wear and failure. Keep in mind that the timing chains rely on oil viscosity. Lighter oils will reach every part of the engine components that need lubrication.
Please check your owner’s manual for the recommended mileage you should change it at. If in doubt, contact us here at mechanic 24hr and we will advise you.
Our Advise on Timing Chain Change
- Go for a full kit that includes sprockets (camshaft and crankshaft), tensioners and guide rails, not just the timing chain change.
- When buying a used car, change the timing chain asap, unless you get proof of recent timing chain change.
